Even if a top D man drops we HAVE to take him. You can always trade players. Better to have one that you know will be in the NHL at a position of strength than a player that might make it at a position that you are weak.
A guy like Petricki is the type of defenseman we don't have. A crease clearer.
Exactly, like I said, or was trying to... you can never have too many good defensemen. We could really use a crease clearer, like you've said. That's something we've lacked since Beukeboom.
I still stand by the fact that we're not that deep on the wings.
